1969 Volkswagen Type 3

The guy who was selling the splitty buses on Hwy 78 still had a few VWs left after the splitties sold. One was a 70 Ghia which my sister-in-law bought and one was a 76 Westy which I bought.

The Westy runs, but doesn't want to idle. The exterior is OK with a couple of rough spots, but the interior is in good shape and fairly complete. I'm bringing my new toy home on Saturday, but probably won't do much with it till after Jake's show. (I'm trying to get the Thing ready) The biggest negative this bus has is that a PO removed the fuel injection and put on a Weber progressive because it was 'better'.

Ryan is the guy who is selling off most of his collection. He still has a 78 Riviera camper for sale. It needs a battery, gas, and interior work. Engine has been rebuilt by the Doster Bros. and it is still fuel injected. He has it on Craig's list for $5000. I know he'll go as low as $3000.

Jon,
Don't even bother with that POS 2 barrel weber.. Pull it off and go straight to a set of duals, or put the EFI back on.

I am making a list of what I'm going to need and carb change is on that list.
